    Helambu – Gosainkunda – Langtang Trek

    We did the Helambu –Gosainkunda – Langtang trek. The trek itself was very good, hard physical work but very rewarding, especially the views on the pass and the Cherco Ri. Our guide Santosh could tell a lot about the region and its history. We had lot of fun! 
     
    It was my first in the mountains of Nepal and I loved it! It was hard work but afterwards it was all worth it. 
     
    We had a lot of fun with our guide Santosh and our porter Ashok. We were well taken care of with the food and our wished to sleep sometimes in another lodge than planned. 
     
    So I would really recommend the trip and this organization and guide !
